We have been reflecting a lot on the recent fires and where we go from here.... more to come but found this link that is very helpful from our Heroes at CalFire.

We developed this larger scale garden plan for rebuilding up on Fountaingrove size lots.  Some important elements:  Keep a defensible space around residence, mass plants and have space between them for a fire break, use California native plants - they are drought adapted and use less water to hydrate.  The key to a fire safe landscape is hydrated plants and proper maintenance.  More to come but for now enjoy this beautiful landscape!
